>After creating heaven and earth,God created Adam and Eve. And the first
>thing He said was 'DON'T!'
>'Don't what?' Adam replied.
>'Don't eat the forbidden fruit,' God said.
>We have forbidden fruit? Hey Eve... we have forbidden fruit!">>
"Do NOT eat the fruit!" said God.>>
"Because I am your Father and I said so,"God replied,wondering why He>hadn't stopped creation after making the elephants.>>
A few minutes later, God saw His children having an apple break and He>was ticked off!>>
"Didn't I tell you not to eat the fruit?" God asked.>>
"Uh huh," Adam replied.>>
"Then why did you?" said the Father.>>
"I don't know," said Eve.>>
"She started it!" Adam said.>>
Having had it with the two of them, God's punishment was that Adam and>Eve should have children of their own.>>
Thus the pattern was set and it has never changed.>>
BUT THERE IS REASSURANCE IN THE STORY!>>If you have persistently and lovingly tried to give children wisdom>>
And they haven't taken it, don't be hard on yourself. If God had trouble>raising children, what makes you think it would be a piece of cake for>you?

2. Grandchildren are God's reward for not killing your own children.>>
3. Mothers of teens now know why some animals eat their young.>>
4. Children seldom misquote you. In fact, they usually repeat word>>for word what you shouldn't have said.>>
5. The main purpose of holding children's parties is to remind>>yourself that there are children more awful than your own.>>
